The LGBT people in the UK and across Europe has started to become more inclusive and accepting. However, the church has mixed responses with many LGBT feeling ostracised marginalised, and at times invisible, within evangelical churches. Some churches are beginning to embrace an inclusive approach, but the often the voice of LGBT people can be lost particularly as it is not always clear what reception they may face or how to discuss their Christian faith.
This conference is the first in a series exploring how to help LGBT people and their families and friends explore way to find a voice for LGBT people within the Christian church. The conference is being lead by Rachel Mann whose own journey has given her a unique voice as a priest, poet, journalist and transgendered person. You can find out more about her here: http://rachelmann.co.uk
